“In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing.” – Mignon McLaughlin
Ashley Byrne is the consummate party boy, the pretty guy who takes sex wherever he can find it, with whomever catches his attention at just the right time. He’s the apprentice tattoo artist who dreams of bigger things with his best friend Ty. The question, however, is whether he has the focus and can summon the motivation to make that dream happen.
Felipe Navarro is to geeks what Ash is to players—he represents. Fee is the guy who speaks binary code, very likely knows Han Solo’s birth date, can debate in great detail who the better Enterprise captain was: Kirk or Picard. In other words, they don’t even come close to speaking each other’s language. But… There’s always a but, isn’t there?
But the laws of attraction are more guidelines than dictate, and sometimes breaking the rules is well worth the effort to discover that something that may appear to be inconceivable can be something entirely amazing because even though it feels like you’re mostly dead in the water, mostly dead is still slightly alive and true love is a miracle worth living and fighting for.
The Party Boy’s Guide to Dating a Geek is the sweet, funny, and utterly charming story of two guys who really just shouldn’t add up but manage to find the missing variable—trust—and solve the equation of how to fall in love with someone who is on the opposite end of his spectrum. It’s a story about changing who you are, not for anyone else but yourself, if for nothing else than because you’ve found someone who makes you want to be more than what others see. Ash and Fee are a slow and steady build up to something much bigger than themselves, because really, you just can’t rush miracles.
There are fire swamps to survive, rodents of unusual size to slay, Humperdinks to defeat… No, wait, that’s the wrong book, but The Party Boy’s Guide to Dating a Geek is no less about finding and fighting for true love, and knowing, in the end, that there’s plenty of magic to be found in faith.
